Honorable Media, It gives me immense pleasure to announce the commencement of the 8th State Level Paralympic Swimming Championship for swimmers from all over Maharashtra on 2nd October, 2013 at Andheri Sports Complex. This event is only meant for the Locomotion Impaired and visually impaired swimmers.

I would like to kindly request print / television media, to cover this state championship, which would only highlight the achievement of this disabled swimmers but also be motivational to other physically challenged swimmers to come out & try out this sport.
